     It was fun to be with like-minded people, looking at innovations in food and how technology can impact our purchase, preparation and consumption.

     Lingling has done an amazing job getting together like minded and brilliant participants as well as speakers in an industry that is not easy to find in bay area. I have personally got inspired and generated ideas after attending just one meet up. Very grateful. Thank you Lingling :-) Krishna Founder, Oorja Nutrition.

     Highly recommended Meetup! Lingling does a fantastic job putting together interesting events with great speakers covering relevant topics. I've also been impressed with the networking opportunities that have come out of each event. Kudos to all involved!

     The Food Innovation Circle is great. Lingling (the organizer) never fails to find interesting speakers and venues, and the attendees are always interesting people as well. Highly recommended for anyone in the food business, or for those thinking about making a switch to food!

     The Food Innovation Circle discussions, speakers, and panels are always interesting and cover a diverse range of topics within food entrepreneurship. I am so appreciative of the effort Lingling puts into creating an awesome network of food innovators and helping new community members get a feeling for what's going on in food!

     Breakthrough Innovation to me is creating something out of nothing, which is how I'd describe the Food Innovation Circle's genesis. FIC sets out an amazing buffet of informative events, spanning an array of food-oriented topics. Every meetup is well orchestrated & a delight to attend.

     Lingling is very thoughtful and meticulous in who she picks for the meetups and in the questions she asks. I've been to several of the FIC events and never cease to be impressed by what I learn and the people whom I meet.

     Lingling amazes me with the great events she has produced. She continues to bring forward interesting speakers and topics that cover the spectrum of food innovation. I've learned so much from unexpected places! Another benefit is the great group of people I've met.

  • Food Innovation Circle

     I've really been inspired by all the Food Innovation Circle's discussions I've attended so far. Moderating thoughtful conversations, Lingling has found a very pleasant way for us to get real insights into food startups strategies, philosophy and choices, on many different segments/aspects of this sector. I'm learning a lot, and enjoying just as much meeting great people who share the same appetite for the topic of food and innovation in our food systems.

  • Food Innovation Circle

     The Food Innovation Circle hosts the type of events that leave me feeling refreshed and inspired. From a screening of City of Gold, to 6Sensor Labs' 2 minute gluten sensor Nima, to a food packaging expert at Clif Bar, the presenters are always interesting and the conversation enlightening. With the continuous shift in how food is perceived, many aspects of production and distribution are being disrupted. This Meetup gives a glimpse into the front lines. Lingling does a fantastic job curating the presenters, hosts, and of course, there is usually good food to munch on.

     Really enjoyed my first meetup with this group, hearing the founder of Josephine tell his story. I appreciated how accessible he was and the group attending was great -- I liked hearing about everyone's work and interests. Looking forward to the next speaker! I'm really interested in the food justice angle of food innovation. Thanks for organizing this group, Lingling!

     Great meeting and discussion.

  • Food Innovation Circle

     Very good for anyone interested or involved in food innovation, startups or food in general. I think larger corporations (like Ling-Lings) could all benefit from being a part of this group. Maybe we should invite more established corporations as well to get some input from industry? I would love to see more retailers there as well. We have had Walmart there after all...
